Mailbag: A vote for fake speed bumps

May 11, 2010

I read the article about the dangerous intersection in Montrose (“Residents cite unsafe intersection,” March 20). Since I live near the intersection of Waltonia Drive and Park Place, I pass through the corner very often, and I have seen two cars that were severely damaged by a traffic collision.

I agree with one of the residents that lowering the speed limit will not solve the problem. No matter what the speed limit is, some drivers speed if there is no traffic or pedestrians. I understand that adding the speed bumps might cause additional safety issues. What if fake speed bumps are added? Will it cause problems, too?

Of course the fake bumps will not fool drivers for long, but at least we can fool drivers who have never seen them. I guess the parked cars have been hit mostly by drivers who are not familiar with that corner. So drivers who have never been there will certainly slow down, and collisions will not occur.

Arizona is handling illegals properly

Kudos to Arizona and its new laws concerning illegal immigrants who have usurped our schools, our health plans, our traffic problems and ruined our economy! At last, someone has the guts to start doing something about the ruination of our country!

I hope other states will follow Arizona’s lead and close our borders to illegal immigrants. If they want to become citizens, let them do it the legal way — learn English, pay taxes, and stop living off the American taxpayers.

In addition, the children of illegal immigrants born the United States should not automatically become citizens!

President Obama is lax in doing something about the overtaking of America by foreign citizens. In the addition of the flawed health-care plan, is Obama going to declare amnesty for illegal immigrants already in the country?

Time to restore hulking structure

It’s easy to enjoy “Verdugo Views” columnist Katherine Yamada’s features on the Glendale area’s colorful history, and “The early days of old air terminal” on April 30 provided that pleasure again.

It also reminded that 10 years ago the city signed an official agreement with the Walt Disney Co. that included in the Imagineering unit’s overhaul and upgrade of its Grand Central Creative Campus and a promise to restore and reopen the once-famous Art Deco air terminal.
